DMA’S announce huge 16-date Australian tour – SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2023

With their highly anticipated fourth album How Many Dreams? released Friday 31 March, multi-Platinum and critically acclaimed Sydney trio DMA’S are thrilled to announce their biggest headline tour of Australia so far – 16 huge shows this September/October 2023.

The anthemic trio – comprised of Tommy O’Dell, Johnny Took and Matt Mason – will set off across the country in Spring, igniting giant singalongs and euphoric memories at shows announced today for Hobart, Frankston, Castlemaine, Melbourne, Torquay, Adelaide, Wodonga, Canberra, Thirroul, Sydney, Newcastle, Coffs Harbour, Kingscliff, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Cairns. The dates mark DMA’S first time taking their headline show to regional towns and cities, giving fans right across the nation the chance to witness one of Australia’s biggest and most internationally successful outfits live on stage. (WA fans should stay tuned for news too).

Want early access to tickets and do your bit for animal welfare while you’re at it? DMA’S have teamed up with Saving Staffies, a non-for-profit animal welfare organisation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, re-homing and responsible ownership of Staffies (but not limited to this breed). Pre-order the deluxe digital download ($9.99) of How Many Dreams? and fans can access a special artist pre-sale for tour tickets, with all profits from the deluxe release going to the charity.

A big crowd sing-along to “Silver” was a highlight with the group bounding across the stage, while intimate first single “Delete” and a superb cover of Cher’s “Believe” all added up to a night of pure, modern Australian pop-rock – Sydney Morning Herald

Always fabulous live, they put on a faultless show to the adoring crowd. It was packed to the rafters and a massive euphoric sing-along. – THE AU REVIEW

From conquering the main stage at Reading and Leeds to selling more than 65,000+ tickets on their last UK tour and amassing over 400 million streams to date, DMA’S have released five tracks so far off their hotly anticipated How Many Dreams? album (released via I OH YOU). Latest single ‘Something We Are Overcoming’ sees the band shake off any genre expectations, with three minutes of heart-warming, electronic inspiration bliss. The track follows lead singles ‘Fading Like a Picture’, ‘Olympia’, ‘I Don’t Need to Hide’, and ‘Everybody’s Saying Thursday’s the Weekend’… the latter nominated for Radio X’s Record of the Year in 2022 and placing in triple j’s 2022 Hottest 100.

DMA’S’ fourth album follows 2021’s surprise EP, I Love You Unconditionally, Sure Am Going To Miss You, and the band’s critically acclaimed third album, THE GLOW – which earned them nominations for triple j Australian Album of the Year, 5 x ARIA noms including Album Of The Year, Best Rock Album, Best Group, Best Independent Release and Best Australian Live Act, the album debuting at #2 in AU, #4 in the UK, and #1 in Scotland.

With their most adventurous and exhilarating album so far up their sleeve and set to be revealed soon, these just-announced shows will be DMA’S biggest shows down under in 12 months, following their previous sold out run.

Don’t miss the incredible DMA’S, live on stage this September/October. Tickets on sale next Thursday!
